Hammock Reading (Short List)

Hammock reading is a lot like beach reading, only more off the ground. Less sandy. More like a flying carpet. Cooler. And so without further delay, today's top five, not necessarily in order of preference:

Carlos Fuentes, The Old Gringo
Luis Alberto Urrea, The Hummingbird's Daughter
Alejo Carpentier, The Lost Steps
David Seth Michaels, The Dream Antilles
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, One Hundred Years Of Solitude

And, yes, if there's a great number 6 or 7 (or 113 or 114) we all need to know about, please don't hesitate to put it in the comments.
